We will enhance your freedom to choose
Let’s shape society more around your choices rather than those of politicians in an ivory tower.
Your choice is unjustly restricted
The reason why we exist
Limited Access to Good Schools
Our education system often denies the best education to the poorest children and props up poor schools that harms everyone.
Democratic Votes Challenged
Vote for something the Establishment doesn’t like? Intolerant elitist politicians will lead a movement to subvert democracy.
High Council Tax Limits Your Spending
While the council wastes so much of our money, our council tax goes up and we have even less left over to spend in a way that we choose.
Lack of Basic Skills Limits Career Choice
Thanks to our education system, too many adults have very poor numeracy or literacy skills which undoubtedly holds their confidence and career back.
TV Tax Whether You Watch the BBC or Not
Want to watch something other than the BBC? Doesn’t matter. You’ve no choice but to pay the TV licence fee so the BBC can get paid.
Positive Discrimination Destroys Individuality
Want to apply for that job? Misguided “Equality and Diversity” zealotry might mean that you cannot even apply, let alone attend an interview.
Free Speech Cancelled
Wish to express a contrary opinion? Be careful. Speech is strongly policed these days and the authorities decide what you can and cannot say.
Sovereignty Signed Away Without Consent
Did you consent to such a powerful European Union? If the Establishment surrendered our independence without our consent once, in time, they can do it twice.
Trapped on Welfare, Life Choices Capped
We want to support those least well-off in society, but the present system is short-sighted as it traps people in poverty and in the end holds them and their potential back.
New Grammar Schools Banned
Would you consider sending your child to a grammar school near you? Mainstream parties do not want you to have that choice.
Nanny State Instead of Choice Doesn't Work
Sugar taxes don’t work. They raise the cost of living and hurt the poorest. Let’s treat people like adults, provide information and let people choose their own lifestyle.
Small and Medium Business Held Back
Are you free to invest your time inside your business as productively as you would like? Excessive regulation gives larger companies an unfair advantage.
Individual Privacy Violated
Do you choose to keep intimade details about your life private? Most of us do. Yet the Security Services exceed their authority and snoop unjustly into our lives.
Local Elections Make Little Difference
Do you feel that regardless as to who runs the council, nothing really changes? Too many decisions on local matters are made in Westminster rather than locally.
And many more examples that render you choiceless
Labour and Conservatives are tired and out-of-touch
Tax burden at a 70 year high, government borrowing high and yet public services work only some of the time.
It doesn’t matter how much money they have, nothing improves if they keep doing the wrong thing.
In the 21st century, we should withdraw mediocre one-size-fits-all solutions from above, localise major decision-making and enhance your freedom to choose.
The Foundation Party
The people are the masters, not the servants
Our party motto (above) points to the fundamental change of attitude we need.
A modern society revolves around your choices rather than those of politicians sitting in an ivory tower.
We believe in the freedom to choose. We want to enhance your degree of choice and amplify your voice.
Choice in Govt Services
21st century public services tailored to your unique needs
A more free and productive bottom-up economy
Permanent national independence outside the EU
Constitutional protection of information, ideas and opinions
What Prioritising Your Choice Looks Like
Foundation Party policies
While the politicians are trapped by the referendum result, most of them would prefer we re-joined the EU as soon as possible.
We believe the United Kingdom must forever remain a free, independent and democratically self-governing country in full control of its own laws and its own future.
We will introduce a radical new school system and grant poorer kids greater access to private schools.
Schools will receive funding from the spending of parent-issued vouchers and will thus compete more directly with all other schools and become more incentivised to improve their offering.
Replacing an overly-complex and stressful benefits system, we will simplify welfare and guarantee a minimum income.
A Negative Income Tax replaces Universal Credit and purpose-specific benefits with a simple credit paid directly to the individual, gradually withdrawn the more job income earned, leaving the recipient free to choose how it is spent.
TV Licence Scrapped
We will abolish this last century television poll tax.
The BBC will be moved to a private subscription model. Those who wish to consume the BBC will be free to subscribe and fund the BBC. Those that do not will not be forced to do the same.
Free Speech Protected
No one has the right not to be offended.
While left-wing intolerance of free speech is rife in universities and company HR departments, we will protect the free flow of peaceful information, ideas and opinions – offensive or not.
Land Value Tax
Land value increases over time because of investment by the local community. This should be taxed and paid back to the community as society’s principal tax.
No more Income Tax, Council Tax, Corporation Tax, etc. What you earn through your labour and productivity is yours to keep.
New Grammar Schools Permitted
Politicians have no moral right to tell parents what sort of education their child may or may not benefit from.
We will repeal the rules that currently prevent the establishment of new grammar schools.
Devolution to Local Counties
We will devolve major powers such as health, education, housing, policing and criminal justice down to counties and metropolitan areas.
One size does not fit all. Major decisions ought to be tailored to local communities and residents better able to hold decision-makers, spending their money, to account.
Businesses Free From Excessive Rules
We must minimise misguided government command and control, and eliminate huge unnecessary costs for millions of businesses and the unfair disadvantage for small business.
A sunset clause must be applied to all EU-originated regulation that leads to their expiry, unless they can be reasoned and justified afresh.
Referendum Before Constitutional Change
Never again will a majority of short-stay politicians be legally permitted to transform our national constitution without the people’s consent first.
Parliament has no right to transfer sovereignty for example to global institutions like the European Union unless instructed to do so by the people.
Global Free Trade
There is no more effective way to reduce the cost of vital goods and services for everyone, including the poorest, than to cut tariffs and other restrictions on international trade.
We will unilaterally cut tariffs and pursue trade deals that would reduce trade barriers on both sides.
And many more!
I’m an elected Foundation Party councillor because I believe in democracy and greater accountability.
The main parties take the people for granted. Too many councils waste our money and run services poorly. It’s time for a change of attitude.
